Is temptation to be welcomed or avoided?

Excerpt from the message “And When You Pray” on November 26th, 2017 in which pastor Marc addresses the allegedly contradictory claims betwen Jesus’ words in Matthew’s Gospel, and the epistle of James.

And do not lead us into temptation, But deliver us from the evil one” (Matthew 6:13).

“My brethren, count it all joy when ye fall into divers temptations” (James 1:2, KJV)
